Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

We have NWEA testing this week. We will begin on Thursday and continue until the test is completed for all students. Please use the links below to help your child prepare.



*Our first payment of $50 for the Chicago trip is due this week. This payment will determine whether we will go forth with this trip or not depending on how many students will go. Our goal is 44 students.

*The Social Studies tests and Math tests have been graded. Your child will bring a small paper showing the results of the Social Studies test, Your child will also bring a rubric attached to the math test to explain how it was graded. However, we are still making up the math test due to so many kids being absent that week. As soon as all students finish the test, they will be sent home!
